The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center will hold an informational webinar on July 17 and 23 to provide an overview of the Green School Works program’s straw proposal and to solicit feedback and answer questions.

Created as part of the fiscal 2024 state budget, the Green School Works program will provide financial support to K-12 public schools or districts to install or maintain clean energy infrastructure. Funding will go toward project implementation as well as support for building-specific decarbonization assessments and plans and high-level, district-wide decarbonization planning.

The MassCEC will release the straw proposal in advance of the webinars on its program web page.

The webinar will be held on:
• Wednesday, July 17, noon-1:30 p.m. (registration)
• Tuesday, July 23, 6:30-8 p.m. (registration)

According to the MassCEC, the webinar will be particularly helpful for the following stakeholders:
• K-12 school professionals or administrators
• Parents or guardians of K-12 public school students
• School decarbonization advocates
• Municipal officials
• Electrification or decarbonization technical assistance providers or implementers
• General and specialized contractors
• Tax credit experts for public entities

The MassCEC will release a request for information for the Green School Works program in the coming weeks, through which the center will be inviting comments and feedback on the program straw proposal.
